About Us

Welcome to Literacy Learn, your trusted source for high-quality, research-backed resources for reading teachers!

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower teachers and parents by providing expert guidance, support, and a comprehensive range of resources designed to nurture and develop important literacy skills in children.

We understand the challenges faced by reading teachers, classroom educators, administrators, and parents as they work to meet the needs of diverse learners. Our goal is to equip them with the tools and knowledge they need to unlock the full potential of every child.

All of our resources are influenced by the body of research known as the Science of Reading (Structured Literacy). We provide reliable and knowledgeable content that reflects current research and best practices in literacy instruction, from the foundational building blocks of literacy to higher-level skills.

Our Founders

Literacy Learn was founded in February 2021 by Katie and Laura, a dynamic duo (and sisters!), driven by a shared passion for empowering teachers of reading.
